Weekending | Thanksgiving Edition

Happy December everyone and what a weekend that just passed!! My heart is as full as my stomach! I won't recap the treacherous conditions that Mother Nature decided to throw our way on Wednesday night, but waking up to a winter wonderland was well worth it to kick the holiday season off!! 
I promised my in-laws a feast and that's exactly what we provided them with!!! I give holiday hosts so much credit because being in the kitchen from 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM is no joke!!! 
It was my first time making fresh cranberry sauce and it was beyond delicious!! The table was full of the best food - and much to Gary's dismay not too much was left over!
Post dinner stroll and yes I realize we took an almost identical picture last weekend!! 
Friday we made our way to my sister's house to celebrate the rest of the Thanksgiving holiday!! My niece just started taking riding lessons and she's so good, yes I'm biased!! The boys playing some video games and might I add, my BIL and Gary were playing against my nephew because he was whooping them in hockey!! Bottom right photo is about as close to camping as I will ever come!! 
Saturday we were due for some post Black Friday shopping at MarketStreet in Lynnfield! It was surprisingly calm and I finally got that North Face hat I've been wanting as well as a cute blouse from J.Crew since they were having an extra 40% off clearance items! 
We went to dinner with my family Saturday night and enjoyed a seriously delicious dinner and out of this world tiramisu!!
The picture quality on this photo makes me 100% sure I need a DSLR camera!! 
Not one to pass up on candlepin bowling - we played a few games after dinner. Yep bowling in heels!! And just like that the weekend was over and it's back to work, but when it falls on Cyber Monday I'm pretty happy!!
I get almost all my Christmas shopping done today and using Ebates makes shopping that much more fulfilling!! A lot of retailers are doing double cash back too!! Below are some sales along with the ones I posted on Friday that are still good today! 

C.Wonder is offering 40% off site wide

Express has 50% off site wide and free shipping

J.Crew has an additional 40% off sale items

Piperlime has 30% off site wide and additional 40% off sale items code CYBERSALE

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you buy anything good?

Hope you have a great Monday!!

  1. Wow, that snow is beautiful! What a lovely winter wonderland to wake up too. Looks like it was a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Your cranberry dish looks delicious and you are way too cute bowling in heels :)!

    Glad you got the hat you wanted, I found some steals on black Friday, too. So many, that I'm staying away from Cyber Monday, but thanks for the links…I'll just look!

  36. Seriously this holiday went by so fast!!!!! I have a DSLR and I promise you it never gets used. It's just so big and you really need a tripod for everything because of the blurry quality if you don't hold it perfectly still. I am playing around with a new app on my phone that changes all the settings like a DSLR. I will have a full report for you.....naturally ;-) I miss you!!!! We need another meet up ASAP! I mean.....FL will be calling your name soon I feel like with all that snow ;-)

  37. oh wow look at all that snow!! Looks so pretty...from afar! lol Sounds like a fab weekend. Your hair looks gorgeous with all those curls!

  40. I would never survive in all that snow, NEVER! Bowling in heels? You go girl, I can barely stand up in them. I would love to make home made cranberry sauce, but since we're always traveling, it is just easier to volunteer to make an appetizer.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What an awesome weekend you guys had! Love all the snow. We got snow too (finally!) and it's sticking around for a few days, so I'm a happy lady. Just wish we got more.

  45. Look at you bowling in heels! That's impressive! And that's the kind of "camping" I can get behind - I'm not much into the outdoor kind :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! I've never had to host the dinner, but I commend those who do. Someday I'll be up for the challenge! I love bowling, but I'm horrible at it. I could never do it in heels! One time I managed to get a gutter ball even with those bumper things up that only children are supposed to use haha

    ReplyDelete
  47. Bowling in heels, love it! And camping by the fire looks perfect ;) Glad you had a good time and good job on your feast!

  48. What a lovely weekend/holiday! Loving your outfits and your little hat! And congrats on making the cranberry sauce from scratch! I'm so not a fan of the jelly one in a can--and the hubs LOVES cranberry sauce so I've made it from scratch a few years--this year I let my sister do it hah! Totally jealous of your snow!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love your pictures! Especially the one of you and Gary, and the bowling in heels!! :-) I'm so glad that you had a nice time with your family and that your food turned our well. I'm with you on the camping thing too, just not my thing lol. I hope that you are having a fab day so far too!!

    ReplyDelete

  52. So glad you had a great Thanksgiving! And your crazy weather didn't throw you off, too much! I totally need a DSLR camera, too... but then I wonder if I would actually lug the thing around or still end up taking iPhone pictures?! Haha hope you're having a happy Monday!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow! Looks like you had such a great weekend! Seriously impressed with your Thanksgiving meal! And I love fresh cranberries...they're so easy to make a they taste delish! Cannot believe how much snow you guys got! We got nothing on Long Island...just cold rain! Happy Monday :)

  59. That is MY kind of camping! hahaa. What an amazing dinner feast you made. I made Thanksgiving dinner one year and it was exciting yet draining all at the same time. Luckily, our house isn't really set up for entertaining so we get entertained instead of doing the entertaining!

    The snow pics are beautiful and really represent a winter wonderland

  60. You look like Kim. K bowling (but in a gorgeous, classy-want-to-be-your-friend-still way lol). What a perfect Thanksgiving and that snow is gorgeous!

  63. B how are they letting you bowl in those shoes? Haha! They make us wear the ugly bowling shoes out here. Impressed you could even bowl in them ;). I made cranberry sauce too...I think it's so rewarding cooking fresh cranberries- all the popping and smells. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  67. I give you major props for bowling in heels! Most often times I still slip in those bowling shoes. And all of that snow is so beautiful! Makes me miss living back in Illinois sometimes - but then I remember that it's only 60 degrees here in Florida ;) ha. Happy Monday!
